Scottish Rugby Domestic League Structure Survey

Dear player, supporter, volunteer, coach, administrator, parent & committee member

Your club has been asked to complete a survey by the SRU as part of a consultation on how we wish to see league competition developing from next season with the advent of Super six

The attached link gives some background and clubs have to comment by the end of the month

Consultation: Domestic League Structure

The 2018 AGM debated potential changes to our league structure (including where the Club XVs of the Super 6 franchises should play). Scottish Rugby is now surveying its member clubs in relation to its domestic league structure. Survey returns are required by Wednesday 31 October 2018.

For details of the survey please go to the Consultation section of our website: http://www.scottishrugby.org/regulations/consultations

As a consequence of the debate around super six earlier in the year your Committee thought it only right to share this news with you directly via the club website

Any strong views can be sent to your usual club contacts and the committee await debate amongst our national 1 counterparts before coming to any conclusion on the survey itself

RIP Willie Brand

The Club is saddened to report the passing of Willie Brand. Long standing Rugby Club member. Willie was also a member of the Gold Club and an Honorary Vice President and will be sadly missed.

A generous man with an engaging smile and a great sense of humour. We extend our sympathies to his family, including his son Alastair and grandson Sam, who played for the club for a number of years.

RIP Willie Brand.

Dundee Morgan 62 – 10 Montrose RFC

Great result and a good performance. Plenty support on the sidelines from a Mayfield crowd. Many of the Titans and firsts stayed on to give their vocal support after their training match. Also great to see an ex international world player of the year and Scottish Captain Derek Black standing with David Leslie! Maybe that should be the other way round?? Many other old friendships rekindled on a historic day at Mayfield. The new shorts with a Stag and the Crown evidence that Rugby in Dundee is changing. Come and be part of it!

An invitation to Mayfield

This is a warm invite to come along to Mayfield Sat 25th Aug and join us for a FREE plate of soup, a sarnie and some cheese and biscuits. Why I hear you ask? Well its to celebrate the new collaboration between Dundee High Rugby and Morgan RFC. Since the start of pre-season training there has been joint training for both clubs and it is paying dividends! Saturday 25th at Mayfield there is a Cup game between Morgan v Montrose KO 3pm. There is also a pre-season training match Firsts v Titans KO 1pm. Clubhouse opens at 1pm and entry is FREE. Plenty Rugby to watch!

Both committees extend a warm welcome to come and see what’s changed. You will no doubt meet some old friends! Rugby in Dundee is on the up. Come and see what it is about and be part of it.
